The Finders Keepers Markets Are Back For Spring/Summer 2015

AUSTRALIA | Spring is finally here, and what better way to celebrate it than with a design market, specifically, the 2015 return of the Finders Keepers Spring Summer Markets.

If you’ve only ever seen a Finders Keepers event roll by on your Facebook feed, here’s the lowdown. Founded in Sydney 2008, Finders Keepers has since spread to Brisbane and Melbourne, growing to become one of the foremost markets for Australian independent creators and makers. What this means for you is an opportunity to pick up some great and unique creations ranging from clothes to homewares to artwork to everything in between, directly from its maker.

Finders Keepers is no ordinary market. While we are certain it will offer a wide range of amazing craft, it also has all the hallmarks of a festival with food trucks (because what event could be without them?), bands, and bars taking up residence at each venue throughout the country. As the Melbourne markets are at the Royal Exhibition Building, a venue that has previously hosted events such as famed beer festival the Great Australasian Beer Spectapular, we have no doubt Finders Keepers has the right venue for a festival.

The organisers are still locking down the line-up for this year’s Spring Summer Markets, but you can keep an eye on their blog for future announcements. Of note, there are ATMs on site, but as the queues can be quite long the organisers recommend bringing cash where possible.

Here at The City Lane we’re very big fans of the local art and design scene and Finders Keepers is one of the best ways to support it. Whatever city you find yourself in, we suggest you mark this event in your calendar. We’ve even given you the links to the Facebook events (below) if you want to show off to your friends.
